First Look for Charity

First Look for Charity stands as one of Chicago’s greatest one-day fundraisers, regularly generating more than $2.5 million for 18 area nonprofits. 2017 was a record year where more than $3 million was raised.

Held at McCormick Place the evening before the Chicago Auto Show opens its public run, the benevolent event is anticipated by socialites and car buffs alike. Guests are treated to champagne, wine, soft drinks, elegant hors d’oeuvres and desserts — all while being the first to explore the annual edition of the nation’s largest auto show.
